what do you do about a controlling mil?

My mil constantly is complaining about what i don't do like pick up toys when my kids are playing with them we are staying with her and on top of the fact that i buy and cook her meals i never get a thumbs up or a thanks i feel like i am being walked all over i feel miserable living here and i told my dh that if this happens one more time i am moving out me and our two kids and he says well i guess that means you give up on us ? is that what i am doing if i leave because i feel that way?

  • grrr. I had to love with my mil, before so I completely understyand. but I had no kids at the time... we were even threatened recently to move back in... my mil is very opinionated as well. grrrr I would talk with your hubby to find a solution. maybe give a time frame on how long you are willing to stay and when to move or something. I'm sorry your going through this.

  • What are you complaining about? You are living under her roof. Instead of having hard feelings because she wants her house ran a certain way, try putting that energy into finding a place of your own.
